Crab Casserole

pastel-de-jaibas

Preparation:

For the white sauce: in a small pan over low heat, melt the butter, then add flour while stirring vigorously to avoid burning. Add milk slowly and whisk to prevent lumps. Cook for about 8 to 10 minutes, adding the nutmeg and salt. Set aside.

Sauté the onion and garlic in butter until golden. Reduce the mixture with the wine and sugar, cooking for five minutes. Add the crab meat, a bit of parsley, cilantro, salt, pepper and paprika, mix well. Then add the cream, mantecoso cheese and white sauce. Mix well and place into clay bowls.

Cover the tops with the parmesan cheese before placing in the oven and cooking for 15-20 minutes. Serve hot.
